I am excited to announce my invitiation and participation in this upcoming West 18th St. Fashion Show. It was an aboslutel pleasure creating a collection for the event last year and this year will be even better. My new collection is titled "The Cages That Bind Us" and will feature five looks for the runway.
Here is a picture from last year's runway with me and my models and accessory partner, Maria Ismert Mincher of Piola Jewel.
Here is the official announcement for this year's show from the committee.
This summer, the West 18th Street Fashion Show will celebrate its 15th anniversary of showcasing spectacular fashion artistry and craftsmanship with a special theme: Invitational Summer! Rather than accepting applications based around a core concept, this year the producers have invited runway alums and a select group of national designers to develop their own unique concepts for the event.
